Hallmarq installs its first zero-helium small animal 1.5T MRI machine in the US 

Hallmarq, a leading name in advanced diagnostic imaging, has just installed its first zero-helium small animal 1.5T MRI machine in the United States. Now operational at the Wisconsin Neurology and Surgical Center, this device signifies a pivotal advancement in MRI technology. Their departure from a reliance on helium is not only environmentally friendly but brings significant cost savings. There is no requirement to source and purchase a finite resource and no risk of a system quench. Furthermore, the veterinary-specific design includes a built-in RF shield which negates the need for an expensive room fit-out. For veterinary practices faced with the ongoing challenge of recruitment and retention, Hallmarq’s Remote Operations Service (ROS) enables access to their licensed MRI Vet Techs who can operate the system for maximum efficiency. Hallmarq is inviting colleagues to visit them at ACVIM in Minneapolis, US, at booth #1433, from June 5th-9th and see their small animal 1.5T firsthand. 

Wisconsin’s owner, Dr Adam Moeser, explains his reasons for choosing the Hallmarq zero-helium 1.5T machine, “Alongside the machine producing excellent images, Hallmarq offered practical solutions to me in financial and logistical terms. Hallmarq is a one stop shop and produces, delivers, installs, and maintains the equipment and software used to run the equipment.”

With over two decades of working within the veterinary industry, Hallmarq understands the unique needs of veterinarians working in clinical practice. It provides workable solutions that address the cost, complexity, and commitment of offering small animal MRI and – with their unique Imaging-as-a-Service (IaaS) model – a single monthly payment covers everything. 

Dr Moeser continues, “I am a new entrepreneur, and the start-up costs for a veterinary neurologist were proving to be a major obstacle. Hallmarq’s leasing program allowed me the financial flexibility that I needed to get my company off the ground and invest in other areas of my business.”

Mike Torres, Global Vice President of Customer Success at Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging, comments, “We are delighted to have installed our first zero-helium 1.5T MRI Machine in the US. The machines have been gaining traction in the UK and we are thrilled at the global expansion. We are looking forward to attending ACVIM in June where we will have a machine on our stand, which is the first-time people will be able to see it in person. We welcome everyone to come and see the system and look forward to answering any questions.”
